Women Are More Likely Than Men to Have a Blog (and a Facebook Profile) | Inspiring Social Media | Scoop.it
Girls may not run the world, but they dominate on the web.

 

When it comes to the demographic discrepancies of social media usage, we tend to think primarily about age.

LinkedIn Makes Homepage More Like Facebook, Google+ | Inspiring Social Media | Scoop.it
LinkedIn overhauled the look of its homepage on Monday, the end result of which is sort of a mashup of Facebook and Google+.

 

As on Facebook, the design — rolling out over the next few weeks — has more relevant updates on top plus a comment stream that is set off with a different-colored (light blue) background. There’s also a line on top of the stream that shows which people — and how many — commented and liked the post.

 

However, the design is less cluttered than Facebook’s, making it more similar to Google+. The page also boasts a black band on top hosting headers like “Home,” “Profile,” and “Contacts.”

 

“This simpler and cleaner design makes it easier to navigate the page and quickly find the updates you’re looking for – whether that’s a news article your boss has recently shared or it’s to see who has just started a new job,” writes Caroline Gaffney, a product manager at LinkedIn, in a blog post explaining the move..

Many were proclaiming trouble for Pinterest when the site started to show a drop in users.
